Anil Shah

Luke is thorough & holistic in how he thinks through situations & opportunities. He is one of the rare people who can be both subjective and ... objective, but not wedded to a fixed point of view, which allows him to consider all possibilities. Once he gathers all of that information, he is able to form a solid & insightful POV on what to do, which makes the probability of his success very high. He's also smart enough to know when & how to pivot. He's what makes being an entrepreneur exciting.

Pramod Cherukumilli
They're my school  •  Co Founder, Stealth Mode Startup. Previously CTO & Co Founder, Produk.me.
Luke is a highly motivated, driven individual who always completed the projects we worked on early and with maximum quality. He is scrappy a ... nd is always working to expand his knowledge and be the one to question if something does not make sense. He has this great ability to persuade others to see his point of view with minimal effort. Luke has great people skills and this great knack of making friends easily. His finance background combined with excellent analytical skills will help him to come up with a great business model for his startup. I wish him well and can't wait to hear more about his company.

Joe Inkenbrandt
They're my school  •  Founder and CEO, Identify3D and Technology Consultant, Inkenbrandt Consulting LLC. Purdue grad.
Luke is fantastic at making connections and working with others. He is very driven and detail oriented.
Rochelle Webb
They're my school  •  SVP, Global Marketing Activation, Quiksilver. Previously Global Director, Media and Branded Entertainment, Activision.
Luke is a natural born leader, but what is even better is he is a natural collaborator as well. There are not many people in the world that ... carry both qualities. Luke can effectively manage very large teams, but he appreciates feedback and cross-sharing in the development and execution process of every project. Luke is highly intelligent, but also fun to be around. Some intellects tend to not communicate well, but Luke excels in this area. He graduated top of our class in our MBA program at Berkeley's Haas School of Business. He is a quick learn and can find a relatable way to teach others. And finally, Luke is one of the most thoughtful people I know. I find that in business, rare do you find people that actually care about you and what you think, but Luke thrives off of this. He really enjoys learning about others, their backgrounds, what they like and don't like. He is extremely inquisitive and authentic in that he truly wants to learn as much as he can about the people around him. Luke is someone that I would support or partner with in any capacity, no questions asked. You would be lucky to have him as a co-founder.

Rochelle Webb
They're my school  •  SVP, Global Marketing Activation, Quiksilver. Previously Global Director, Media and Branded Entertainment, Activision.
I absolutely recommend working with Rochelle. Having managed global marketing strategy for large consumer goods organizations in the past, ... Rochelle brings the highest level of executive skills to any venure - presentation skills, communication prowess, strategic thinking, subject matter expertise, and proven leadership skills. She is not afraid to express her opinion, and you will be the better for taking her advice. Most importantly, Rochelle is a joy to work with, because she is intelligent, witty, and insightful. I would definitely recommend working with Rochelle - I sure hope to in the future.
